After school cookies

When the kids rush in from school, the first thing on their minds is….you guessed it,food. Their favourite thing is a mug of hot chocolate and buttery toast, or what my eldest likes is what he calls ‘toast but not toast’. Bread toasted for only a minute or two so its warm but not crisp, yea pretty gross if you ask me. So today it’s gona be the ultimate cookie, crunchy nutty and chocolatey.


100g butter
50g soft brown sugar
50g Demerara sugar
1 egg
1tsp vanilla extract
25g desiccated coconut
200g chopped dark chocolate
50g sunflower seeds
50g flaked almonds
90 g oat bran
100g self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 160 C. Line two greased trays with grease proof paper. Cream the butter and sugars. Beat in the egg and vanilla essence. Stir in the coconut, chocolate, sunflower seeds, and almonds. Measure out the oat bran, flour, bicarbonate and salt and mix. Add to the wet mixture till combined. Form into about 16 golf balls and place them on the tray allowing space for expansion. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden. Cool for a minute on the tray and then transfer to a rack to cool. Yummy with a glass of milk.
